The SF Parks Alliance, DoTheBay, and Alamo Drafthouse are teaming up this summer to bring San Francisco the Sundown Cinema: an outdoor film series that will take place in four iconic parks around the city this summer. The movies are an effort to bthe ring community together, provide some free fun for cinephiles and casual moviegoers alike, and to help sustain the beautiful parks that San Fransisco has been blessed with.

There will be food, drinks, and plenty of fun at each of the selected locations for every movie showing. These events are a great and inexpensive excuse to get outside and enjoy the wonderful parks that SF has to offer. A portion of the proceeds from every showing will be going to the San Francisco Parks Alliance to help maintain and preserve these community spaces.

“We’re thrilled to have Sundown Cinema join the already thriving Bay Area film community,” says Brett Leader, event co-organizer and general manager at DoTheBay. “We’re hoping this series brings something fresh and exciting to the table, especially since all the films we’ve chosen directly coincide with the park where the screening will be hosted.”
